Today’s post is about one of the best blogging tools available for free on the web. Zemanta.
What does Zemanta do?
You can use Zemanta for the following:
- Add related articles at the end of each post. They can be either articles that are recommended by Zemanta from other bloggers or your own articles. You can even add small thumbnails. What’s also interesting is that Zemanta recommends your blogs to other users as well.
- Image suggestions. Zemanta recommends public domain photos or images from your own Instagram and Flickr accounts. It’s a neat tool when you want to make your post a bit more visual.
- In-text links. Basically Zemanta can link keywords in your post to relevant articles on Wikipedia and other sites.
- Tag suggestions. Yeah, Zemanta does that too. If you’re not sure what tags are best at describing your post, you can always rely on Zemanta to do the work for you.
How can I use Zemanta?
It’s easy. You go to your WordPress Dashboard – Users – Personal Settings, and select Help me find related content (images, links, related articles, and tags) to use in my posts. Then hit Save Changes and you’re good to go.
That’s all you have to do. You don’t need a credit card or anything. Enjoy.
Do you use Zemanta? What about other tools, plugins, etc? Do you have a pet? If yes, tell us (me and my imaginary friend, Adrian) about it.
Blogging Week is far from over. Tomorrow, Blogging and Social Media. That’s a lethal combination.
